The Arkansas Arts Center presents Ansley West Rivers tonight as part of its Distinguished Lecture Series.
It will take place at the CALS Ron Robinson Theater in the Library Square campus. There will be a reception (with cash bar) at 5:30pm followed by the lecture at 6:00pm.
Photographer Ansley West Rivers’ practice focuses on the intersection of landscape and humanity. Through photography, West Rivers bears witness to the state of water now, as time is pertinent to understanding the effects of change. Her Seven Rivers series includes images both beautiful and haunting in an attempt to challenge the viewer’s perspectives on the landscapes that sustain us.
West Rivers’ work is featured in many public and private collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, The Judge Collection, LaGrange Art Museum, and The Mayo Collection. Additionally, West Rivers’s work has been shown at the Wattis Institute of Contemporary Art (San Francisco, CA), Sous Les Etoiles Gallery (New York, NY), Burrard Arts Foundation (Vancouver BC), EUQINOM Projects (San Francisco, CA), The Brower Center (Berkley, CA), Kala Art Institute (Berkley, CA), Carmel Visual Arts (Carmel, CA), Hathaway Gallery (Atlanta, GA), United Photo Industries (DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY), The Print Center (Philadelphia, PA), The Wiregrass Museum (Dothan, AL), and Laney Contemporary (Savannah, GA).
West Rivers will be available to sign copies of her book, Seven Rivers Monograph, before and after the lecture.
